    MOBI A Fool's Alphabet Epub Þ A Fool's Epub / ´ dequiensonlosmedios.co fool's epub, alphabet epub, A Fool's book, A Fool's Alphabet KindleLife story of an Anglo Italian post war baby who never uite belongs anywhere and is oddly unsympathetic for a main character Each chapter refers to a different location each starting with the next letter of the alphabet Contrived but cleverly unfolding tale disjointed though not confusing

    MOBI A Fool's Alphabet Epub Þ A Fool's Epub / ´ dequiensonlosmedios.co fool's epub, alphabet epub, A Fool's book, A Fool's Alphabet KindleI'm a big fan of Sebastian Faulks and would count Birdsong as one of my favourite books but this book failed to hold my attention Comprising 26 alphabetically headed chapters each one the name of a place significant to Pietro Russell the protagonist the novel time shifts throughout Pietro's life I found this confusing at times and struggled to remember what age he now was This might be because I was listening to the book and was thus unable to go back and check details but it meant that I never felt the steady flow of the work Pietro also comes across as an unfinished character neither good nor bad strong nor weak and I didn't engage with him at all There was a fair bit of informative description Paris Metro names and history; place names etc and I felt that these distracted from showing the depth that was needed to commit to the characters If I had to summarise the feel of the book for me in one word I would offer diluted It needed but failed to deliver Disappointing

    MOBI A Fool's Alphabet Epub Þ A Fool's Epub / ´ dequiensonlosmedios.co fool's epub, alphabet epub, A Fool's book, A Fool's Alphabet KindleI loved Birdsong and Charlotte Grey so I was really disappointed by this book It started well but uickly became dull The concept was good but the tortured central character was selfish unsympathetic and boring It really dropped off before the end instead of answers or character development we got a chapter on how much he liked David Copperfield The final chapter was comically bad self indulgent

    MOBI A Fool's Alphabet Epub Þ A Fool's Epub / ´ dequiensonlosmedios.co fool's epub, alphabet epub, A Fool's book, A Fool's Alphabet KindleGreat book to finish the year with Beautifully crafted with 26 chapters it traces through the alphabet in place names which concern the main character Pietro Russell half Italian It's a lovely story and although it leaps through time periods it really works and you don't lose sight of Pietro even though it travels through generations I really liked it

    MOBI A Fool's Alphabet Epub Þ A Fool's Epub / ´ dequiensonlosmedios.co fool's epub, alphabet epub, A Fool's book, A Fool's Alphabet KindleThere is nothing wrong with this book but it just doesn't soar to some of the places you expect a Sebastian Faulks novel to soar toThe mechanism for delivering the book is interesting 26 places introduced alphabetically where a different piece of mosaic making up the life of Pietro Russell is introduced But don't be thrown by the device it doesn't add but nor does it detract from the book as a wholeFor a book which time shifts so easily and which shifts narrative viewpoints fairly regularly the plot is reasonably easy to follow There is no great sophistry to it despite the apparent sophistication of the mechanismMaybe what disappoints most is the main protagonist himself usually in a Faulks novel you find yourself totally engrossed in the main character whether you like loathe or are just fascinated by the development of that character Pietro Russell is

    MOBI A Fool's Alphabet Epub Þ A Fool's Epub / ´ dequiensonlosmedios.co fool's epub, alphabet epub, A Fool's book, A Fool's Alphabet KindleAwfulThis novel reads like a commentary to a scrap book of sorts with long descriptions of random 'pictures' presented to us alphabetically as fragments of his life's memoriesThis budle of excerpts is uninteresting and badly researched It often felt like amateur writing Anyone who knows anything about post war Italy would know that in Sorrento in 1958 the last thing you'd expect to find in a local resturant is typic
